rebirth of the life-generating and life-sustaining sun
the darkest moment of the seasons;
oil of an ancient temple lamp burning beyond its limit;
shining star in a dark sky illuminating the way;
light of mercy revealed through prayer and devotion;
guiding light of seven principles arising from the heart of
is the season of The Festivals of Light...
the darkness of this Winter
these terror filled and challenging times;
we all find the light in darkness,
following change and loss,
and virtue and devotion in the face of great challenge.
